December 18, 2018

CHARLESTON - Gov. Jim Justice has issued proclamations declaring Christmas Eve (Monday, Dec. 24) and New Year’s Eve (Monday, Dec. 31) as full-day state holidays for public employees.

“In recognition of the hard work accomplished throughout the year by our public employees, it is fitting and proper that they spend an extended and enjoyable holiday with their loved ones,” Justice said.

Previously, both Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve were officially listed as half-day holidays.
